One of the great advances of recent decades, really just a little thing, but it means a lot to me, is the fact that they play rock and roll at the grocery store now. No more "elevator music," no more easy listening, just solid songs from my generation's songbook.
Except at Christmas. As soon as the Christmas season rolls around it's back to the piped-in holiday standards. Luckily there is a slowly growing list of solid rock and roll Christmas songs. While working through my shopping list the other day I found myself dancing in the aisle when Chuck Berry's Run Rudolph Run came on, filling the market with my kind of holiday cheer. I hope it rocks your day, too.
